1955 Hudson Hornet Custom Hollywood , V-8, Air, Restored, RARE!!

This car was featured in a multiple page article in the April 2010 edition of Collectible Automobile  magazine and well known to likely be the best in existence.  This has been well restored while keeping as many original features as possible.

This motorcar has most all of the rarest options including the powerful 320 cu in Packard V-8, Ultramatic automatic transmission, Continental rear spare kit, radio, Weather Eye hearing and air conditioning, reclining seats/beds, power steering and power windows.

This was bought by my mentor Dick Benjamin in 1985 having accumulated about 70,000 miles.  The motorcar came from South Dakota and was in all original preserved condition.  After restoring the car he and his wife participated on numerous car tours throughout the country.  The “Hash” now has 91,750 miles.

One of about 1,700 made this was the top-of-the-line model for the new American Motors Corporation.  This is a rare opportunity to obtain an exceptionally limited production model that has a low survivor rate.  In addition, this is likely the nicest in existence and is now a California “blue plate” motorcar.  This would be an important addition to a collection of American motorcars at a fraction of the cost to restore one- if you could find an unrestored example.

We will be taking full detailed photos and video in the upcoming weeks as we fully service it in preparation for sale.  For further details please call Harry at 951-901-5088 or email us at harry@classicpromenade.com.
